Physician Compensation Data

2009 Physician Compensation Survey, by the American Medical Group Association (AMGA)
The 2009 AMGA Medical Group Compensation and Financial Survey is a national recognized compensation survey
designed to assist various management levels in evaluating and comparing current physician compensation and
productivity levels, trends and relations hips between compensation and productivity. The report and its data can assist
in making compensation-related decisions for a medial groups physicians, non-physician medical staff and select
administrative positions.
This report can also be used in various ways to identify trends and measure a medical groups own compensation and
productivity as compared to other medial groups throughout the nation. We believe the data is representative of large
multi-specialty group practices.
